Several nationally-known physicians will soon speak at a symposium being sponsored by Kansas Senator Dr. Mark Steffen and Kansans for Health Freedom.
The event will bring together Drs. Peter McCullough, Pierre Kory, and John Littell as well as Overland Park physician Jesse Lopez.
According to a release from Steffen, The Early Covid Treatment Symposium will be a first-of-its-kind event intended to spark discussion about early treatment for COVID-19 using multi-drug protocols.
“The sole purpose behind the Symposium is to bring together thought leaders in the healthcare field to evaluate and broaden opportunities to prevent suffering and death from the COVID-19 virus,” Steffen said in the release. “Unfortunately, many early treatment strategies have been vilified and censored for reasons unknown to me. The Symposium will shed light on how effective treatments were squashed by academic medicine, government, big pharma, and the media.”
Physicians from the University of Kansas Medical center have been invited, but it is unclear if they will participate in the event set for 2:30 to 5:30 p.m., March 2, at the Hyatt Place in Lenexa. KHF says space is limited and tickets cost $35.
McCollough is a cardiologist who has broadly published on a range of topics in medicine with over 1,000 publications and more than 600 citations in the National Library of Medicine. He has 47 peer-reviewed publications on the infection and has commented extensively on the medical response to the COVID-19 crisis in The Hill and on Fox News.
Kory, a critical care physician, is President and Chief Medical Officer of the Front-Line Covid-19 Critical Care Alliance and co-author of a study in the American Journal of Therapeutics on the efficacy of Ivermectin along with corticosteroids in the early treatment of COVID-19.
Littell is a board-certified Family practitioner from Kissimmee, Florida, and is also a proponent of early treatment and off-label use of drugs shown to be effective against COVID-19.
